Hello

I am returning to bioinformatics after a long absence and would like some advice on what sort of statistics/probability I need to learn to help me with my research.

Please bear in mind that I haven't 'studied' statistics or maths really since school so I will have to go right back to the basics but I'm pretty sure I can handle some degree of difficulty as I know I taught myself how to do delta/epsilon proofs of limits in calculus 'for fun' once so I can't be that bad.

So assume I am someone with no knowledge but capable of learning.

The other problem is that my research topic is hazy. I'm going to have lots of SNP data available for multiple individuals from different populations and I'd like to be able to do something meaningful with it. However its hard for me to think of potential directions when I don't have the maths skills to know what I could do with my data.

Perhaps I just need to read a basic statistics book and then build from there but some pointers of interesting directions in statistics and probability would be extremely useful

Many thanks
